I'm wondering because it seems they've been very careful to state that once releases go out of print (Road Trips, the Spring 1990 box), they won't be released again in PHYSICAL format.

Or do you think it's just to cover their bases in case they do decide to go digital?

They will gauge the response to this release. They need to make the new releases viable to the next generations of the original fans. The fans who were born in the 40's and 50's are no longer the market that will keep them afloat. I will be impressed if it sells 9000 copies. Maybe what I mean is they can make you want something you can hold in your hand, but digitally they'll lose control and will never be able to support the business.

when they send you ten, will it be any easier for you to send the unwanted nine back ?

Ha! I hope I never have to go through that again. I don't have the energy!

It's called the FEAR FACTOR!!!

Get it now or you will never, ever, ever see it again.

(I'll have to check the site, since the last time I looked they were pulling back on the digital releases rather than moving forward.)

The links to buy the digital 11/5-11/6/79 shows have been broken for over 2 years! Not a big priority for them, it seems.
